Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    The migration of internet use from Porn to Pythagoras and Plato is possible the greatest sub revolution of the communications revolution of the 21st century.

    I have taken two Coursera classes so far. I’m impressed with the quality of content. They definitely require some work and time. You might think they should be easy since they have to be computer graded, but they definitely are not easy. Worthwhile if you have the time and interest.

    I agree, I’ve taken a couple of classes myself and my only concern is that I don’t have enough time to follow all the classes I’m interested in.
